Challenge #13 Prize posted!


I've had a pretty busy week.
Had friends over on Sunday.
Taught a Cricut Class Monday.
Had a Friend over on Tuesday.
Spend the day out with Momma on Wednesday.
Went to a Tupperware class on Thursday.
Prepped the house Friday for the
delivery of our New Sleep Number Bed.
(FYI moving a Queen size bed alone is no easy task.)
Saturday the Sleep Number Bed Arrived and
Mom and I spent the afternoon at the
scrapbook store helping the owner pack.

NOW that Tupperware class was awesome!
Mom and I bought these microwave cooking sets
and of course we had to learn how to use them
so tada the class. But you can cook a lb of
Chicken in 6 Minutes!! And it's perfect,
not dry, not funky, perfect! I can't wait
till we get our sets in this next week!

Opps sorry off track!

Okay so today my first task was to finish
gathering the items for Challenge #13's prize!

Princess Birthday!

My little Cousin Belle is celebrating her
5th birthday this month,
so I knew I has to make something for her.
I used the new Once Upon a Princess Cartridge
for my Cricut and got to work.

What's better than playing dress up?
Each doll stands at about 3 inches
and they have plenty of dress to share :).
The dolls and dress are each backed with thin
chipboard for better wear and tear.
To attach the dresses to the
dolls I used little Velcro dots.




To Complete the Princess theme I
created a Castle Card of course!!


This is Belle the Birthday Girl!
This little girl is a true Princess!


Happy Birthday Belle!

It's ALL about the SUSSIES!


In November 2008 I was searching for a
monthly kit club and stumbled on Scrapbook Sussies.

I LOVE Sussie's kits.

They are Packed with embellishments and Paper galore.
Kits are two sided - so it's like getting two kits instead of one!
So here I am 15 month's later still a
subscriber and I still get antsy waiting
for my kit to show up at my door step.

You've gotta check out the kits.
Here's the April Kit:

Here's a few projects I've
completed with the kit so far.



I hope you get to check out the Scrapbook Sussies Site
and take time out to check out the Blog.

A Few Projects...

To Share.

2 more Cards from that
Card Kit Swap I hosted on Jujubee's.

This one I made using this past
month's Card Sketch for the Challenge.

This month I also asked you to make a mini
album and use chipboard. I made the "MY GUY"
using chipboard cut into a cassette, I used my
Cricut and the Indie Cart for this project.


A Change Canister for my SIL.


The only project I completed at the crop
last Friday! I'm crossing my fingers that
this Friday I'll get more done. I gotta
say though I had a blast last week :).
I used my April Sussie Kit for this :).


An Altered Frame
I used my April Sussie Kit for this :).

Cake Pin Cushion

Have you seen The DIY Dish?
No?
Then you must ASAP!

Kim and Kris are fantastic ladies
and have so many cool and unique ideas.
When I saw their first episode I became
hooked, yes, just the first one.
I couldn't wait for the 2ND one to be posted.
They are now on episode #4 and I'm loving it.

Now so far projects they have shown
are normally projects I would not attempt.
But I did :).

Here's my first attempt at the lovely
pin cushion tutorial from the 1st episode.



It's red so of course it's my mom's :)!
She loves it and I hope to make a couple more soon.
